A woman labourer from Madhya Pradesh has filed a complaint with the Porbandar Police in Gujarat on Thursday that a driver of a luxury bus and its conductor raped her on the rooftop while all other passengers were having dinner at a hotel.
The woman asked the driver to arrange some space for sleeping
The woman told police that on Wednesday night, she was travelling from Madhya Pradesh’s Kuksi town to Porbandar in a private bus. The bus halted at a hotel at around 9 pm where the passengers got down for eating. She said that she asked the bus driver, Nanabhai, to arrange some space for her where she could sleep. On the pretext of providing her space to sleep, Nanabhai, and the bus conductor, Kapil, took her to the rooftop.
Soon after reaching the bus rooftop, Kapil (bus conductor) started sexually abusing the woman, to which she resisted, but both of them threatened her by saying that they will throw her down. Then, Kapil allegedly raped her. Later, Nanabhai also assaulted her sexually.
Survivor called nephew
Afterwards, the survivor continued her journey on the same bus. Soon after she arrived at Porbandar, she called her nephew and narrated the whole incident. Her nephew approached the police and informed it about the incident. Likewise, the police intercepted the bus and nabbed both the accused.
Meanwhile, the case was transferred to Chhota Udepur Police Station as the alleged rape was committed within its territorial jurisdiction.
